The other fun and quite frequent guests around the house are jack rabbits, quail, and lots and lots of lizards. Up until a couple weeks ago, I could step outside and always see a few lizards hanging out on the warm sidewalk. I'm not sure where they have run off too but somewhere warmer, I bet!
I do however have quite a few good ones of jack rabbits. For awhile there, I was seeing them everyday.
aww, and a baby jack.
And then this is the best shot I've gotten. I had Nick spook him in the back yard while I waited in the front drive way. It totally worked and I got an action shot. (click on these next 2 to see larger versions)
Most recently, we were visited by a cotton tail.
Oh, and a not so welcome guest.
How about now? eek! Right?!! For those of you who don't recognize it (which I never would have) It's a scorpion.
My favorite wild thing found on a hike near here, was this caterpillar.
There are also quite a few horses and cows around here too.... although no longer "wild", I guess.
And even a few other fun "pets".
Gobble Gobble, my friends!
